Why buy this Silver 1944-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar?

Featuring the Exquisite Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman

Obverse: The coin's obverse bears the design for which the coin is named, Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty. Liberty strides confidently in the foreground draped in the American flag and carrying branches as the morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon. Her name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "1944," are inscribed on this face.

Reverse: Weinman's reverse design depicts an eagle standing on a mountain crag. A mountain pine sapling, which symbolizes America, extends from a crack in the rock. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is inscribed on the left, while "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "HALF DOLLAR" are inscribed along the rim. Adolph Weinman is best known to collectors for his two biggest contributions to America's early 20th century numismatic renaissance, the Mercury Dime and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. He also designed medals and was a prominent sculptor, whose work stands on display a century later in numerous American cities.
